Chuck, I’m so happy for you! I’ve “known” you since the very early days of Out West and know this has always been your dream. And it sounds like Gail is the perfect companion — so happy for you both! Happy Trails!

Hi Chuck,
Been following your newsletter for about a year now. I pull a Lance TT, mostly weekend trips until I retire someday. Have learned a great deal from your site. I store my trailer at Snohomish Storage on Bickford, easy access off hwy 9. Great storage facility with its own dump station. Variety of parking options. Covered, not covered, paved, gravel etc. Very good security and so clean.

Chuck, congrats on the new Motorhome. Winnebago makes a superb product. We have a 2006 Winnebago Adventurer, 38 foot with 3 slides . We also bought used . Original owner specked out the unit with extras like 4 door fridge with ice maker, sleep number bed, washer/dryer combo, satellite dish, theatre surround sound system. We love our used unit. Purchased in 2012 and like you you said at 1/2 the original cost.

It was very interesting to view the photos of my home town of Hawthorne, NV. We moved to Tennessee a year and a half ago, but still have family there. We tried full time RVing, but didn’t like it, bought a home here and will just do short time exploring. Love the magazine.

I had to laugh while reading the letter asking how to convince a wife that boondocking in WalMart parking lots is camping. Last year I met a guy who has been WalMarting for decades while I had never even been in a MH! (He’s 80; I’m 75). We went on a cross country trip lasting six months. He thinks WalMart camping is free. I know it costs more like $40 a stay because I get groceries, medications, clothing, kitchen utensils, books and music, etc. with the one-stop shopping. I was even able to get much of the Christmas shopping done… Read more »

As a couple who went from a 29 ft class C to a 37 ft Class A with a slideout, I can tell you it makes such a difference in comfort. My husband loves the driving so much more, the large windshield makes driving on the highways much more relaxing. I love the fact that we don’t have to take turns walking in the RV or bumping into each other. As I am the early riser, I can just shut the sliding door to the bedroom and move around without waking up the sleeping bear! I just know you and… Read more »

Thanks, Paulette. Already, on our 10 day trip back home I am better understanding all you say. The extra space to move around without bumping each other and the ability to close the bedroom door make traveling much more enjoyable. — Chuck

Hi Chuck & Gayle,

We’re in our third year of ‘Fulltiming’ and wonder why we didn’t do it sooner.

I was so happy to read about your recent RV upgrade and your plans to hit the road with Gayle. I love reading your newsletter each Saturday morning.
My husband and I are not ready to give up our nest but still love being on the road a good portion of the year.
I look forward to hearing about your “full timer” adventures!

Congrats on your decision to go full timing. If you are anything like me, there were times when you wondered if you life would every be fulfilling (ie a partner and worry free life). I have it now. So happy you found Gail.

Thanks, Paula. Glad you found the life (and partner) you were yearning for. . . —Chuck

Gee Whilikers!!! Chuck and Gayle – didn’t see this coming!!!! What an adventure ahead – the two of you are riding a high right now anticipating the changes, I bet. Been reading your newsletter starting with the paper one. We finally met outside Valley of Fire a couple yrs. ago. We were the couple from Port Townsend in the Navion who told you of our rollover in our Pulse.

Chuck Woodbury

Hi Suzanne — Yup, good times ahead for us, I hope. I remember well our meeting at Valley of Fire. I’ll never forget the photos of the devastation you experienced with your RV — it seemed a miracle you survived. Are you still in Port Townsend? Would love to catch up with you again. — Chuck

Congrates on the new RV. It is the same as our Itasca Suncruiser. We have done lots of “fixes” to make it boondock friendly, improve engine performance and noise, and improve handling. Be happy to share with you or others.

Chuck….Congratulations on your new 2011 Adventurer. We have a 2013 Suncruiser the Itasca look alike….a 35P. I believe you have the same recessed cooktop situation and I want to caution you about flame spread on the bottom of your pots when cooking on the rear burners. I am attempting to copy and paste the details that I have posted on my FB Community site for Itasca Suncruisers and Winnebago Adventurers Owners page. Our Suncruiser 35P fits our needs very well and the workmanship is far superior to our previous RV. The range top is recessed a couple inches and has… Read more »
